RESIDENTIAL UNIT MOINHOS DA FUNCHEIRA
The new equipment of Unidade Residencial Moinhos da Funcheira, north of the city of Amadora, is integrated in a coherent and consolidated urban cluster of residential and commercial buildings averaging five to six floors.
The proposed building of four floors seeks continuity with the surrounding urban area. It is characterized as a Residential Unit, which seeks to establish a relationship with the surrounding residential buildings.
On the inside it was decided to use a completely opposite strategy. The building, with its large patio connecting to all functional areas becomes an exceptional element. The main covered patio is where all the residential community meets. The areas separate in different levels, either as resting or meeting areas. The patio and the interior gardens is a luminous area that takes maximum advantage of the surrounding natural conditions and function as a large informal stay area. A garden and several vegetable gardens enable different outdoor and leisure activities.
